Sofia Eriksson is a girl whose fingers can spin the most precious of metals into elegant, deceptively simple shapes. Gold: warm, inviting and the subject of myth and fable. In Sofia’s hands the ore is transformed. Sparing of line, with an austerity which belies the many hours of design and making, these pieces compliment so many styles.
With their clean, modern lines, they truly are wearable art, and most importantly, right on point. I’ve got my eye on this gold cage bracelet.
Gold is just not like other materials.sofia Ericksson
I was lucky enough to meet her in Stockholm recently, at Swedish Fashion Talents, and took the opportunity to shoot the breeze with her.
Sofia, your pieces are exquisite! What is it about jewellery that attracts you?
My fascination for jewelry lies in the effect of creating new angles and shapes that relate to the body, like small architectural pieces. I love to work with metal as a material, it has interesting qualities when it comes to creating shapes and surfaces, also I have a passion for the craftmanship.
Why gold, specifically?
Gold holds a special allure for me, as it probably does for others. It has many different meanings, both symbolic and traditional. There is a certain mystery around gold, which I think comes from its long history. It has always been a carrier of meaning.
Working with gold requires precision and awareness.Sofia Eriksson
